About the Owner

When we decided to rent our home we wanted to share its many wonderful memories with other families not just rent a week as a business. Building family memories is very important to us; you and your family work hard all year and deserve a relaxing time. It's perfect for nice getaway for your family. My family has owned this property since the 1900’s; however our present home was newly built a few years ago. We believe everyone should be able to afford to relaxing beachfront vacation

A few steps from the front porch leads you to a smooth sandy beach suitable for swimming or sunbathing all within walkie-talkie distance from our home it has it all. Fishing & crabbing is great from the nearby jetty. Kayaks & Catamarans dot the water in while bicyclists and joggers go by in front of our home. Beach tag free ocean beaches a few miles away. A few short blocks down the street you'll find Typhoon Henry's, popular restaurant by the bay waterfront. The Acme Shopping Center, Banks, Drug & Liquor store, Gym, Post Office, Urgent Care, Public pool & more restaurants are within a mile or two. Less than 1 mile along the beach, you'll find the terminal for the Cape May-Lewis Ferry. Besides housing a fine restaurant, it is your gateway to fantastic shopping in Delaware with over 135 outlet stores, many fine Delaware beaches & restaurants. It's a wonderful 70 min. cruise with some trips with entertainment. A few minutes’ drive will take you to historic Cape May, playground of the Victorian elite and Past Presidents. There you will find miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. Historical homes, home of the famous Cape May Spa, Washington Mall, CM Boardwalk and GREAT seafood restaurants (Lobster House, etc.). A little further brings you to Wildwood with its amusement piers, arcades, Water Park and boardwalk. Further north is Ocean City, with more family fun & another boardwalk. Lastly, Atlantic City with its glitzy shows and casinos is only 35 miles north for the great day trip or night out or local theater stage events.

Our family members have breathing problems including asthma. Thanks. Our home is protected by direct wired fire and intrusion detection. Off street parking for up to 4 cars is available. PET FRIENDLY Policy!! Hypoallergenic dog breeds preferred. All dogs must on flea/tick preventive meds or in other words free of fleas/ticks, etc. Kennel trained dogs, well behaved dog's with all health certifications. Allergenic breed shedding dogs require special daily care due to hair/dander shedding. They will not be allowed on our furniture without pet covers or sheets covering them especially our navy blue living room furniture and daily floor cleaning is rrquired. Small/medium size dog max. weight 25 lbs with prior owner approval & renter written agreement to additional expectations involving cleaning, dog care and healthy safety requirements. Our major problem with some family dogs is their adjusting to a new home. Normally, we require dogs to be kennel crated when left alone.However, our home has a solution to this problem it allows for you to leave your dog free to roam in our long tiled hallway by the bedroom areas. Just provide bedding, water, toys when left alone and use our 4 foot baby gate to block the hallway by the hall closet. This helps to keep your dog safe, from going up & down the steps, using furniture unattended and allows for easy clean up. (Most dogs like the cool floor). We do this with our own dogs; it works great!! Our other renters with dogs really like this option,too SUMMERTIME IS DIFFICULT FOR DOGS due to limited time allowed (between check-outs& check-in of next renters) for proper cleaning involving your dogs. NO DOGS are allowed in summer months without special permission from the owner with renter’s written agreement to additional expectations involving cleaning and care for their four legged family member. We need dog owners help to provide extra care so our home can welcome their family dog member and provide a clean dog-free environment for welcoming our families with allergies or asthma following them, too. TY Spring & Fall a $150 pet e deposit is required; Summer pet deposit is $175 both are non-refundable; exceptions for special needs dogs.
